HELPING HEALTHCARE GET CONTROL OVER EXPANDING BORDERLESS NETWORKS

Leverage Modern Core Networking Services and Security to Create a Real Collaborative Advantage

“DNS is the heartbeat of any corporate network because many different systems depend on it to function. Not having to worry about a DNS system failure is priceless because it not only means 100% uptime, but enables our clinical teams to provide the best patient care experience. Having Infoblox’s true and solid solution, one that is highly available, integrated with core network services (DNS/DHCP) and has support for automating workflows, is enormously attractive and key to efficiently and successfully managing any network.”

Healthcare Is Confronting Unprecedented Challenges

Whether you’re involved in networking or cybersecurity for a hospital group, physicians’ practice, pharmaceutical business, research lab, health insurance company, government organization or essential services firm, the pace of change in healthcare is nothing short of breathtaking. So are the challenges. Exploding administrative costs. Expanding patient expectations. Overworked staffs. Budget cuts. COVID-19. These and many other factors are prompting civilian and federal healthcare organizations to accelerate digital transformation to improve patient outcomes.

From a networking and security standpoint, the healthcare industry faced enormous technical burdens well before the age of COVID-19.

  • A typical business loses between $84K and $108K for every hour an IT system goes down. For healthcare systems, it’s a staggering $636K/hour
  • A single healthcare record is roughly 10x as valuable as a credit card record on the black market
  • Organizations are spending 11-20% more on cybersecurity compared to 2017, yet ransomware attacks on healthcare entities were up 75% in the second half of 2019
  • Almost half of healthcare firms still don’t have automated systems that actively scan for suspicious cyber threat activity
  • There are currently 646 million IoT devices deployed in healthcare

Infoblox delivers world-leading solutions that empower healthcare organizations of all sizes and areas of specialty to meet rapidly escalating demands, achieve higher levels of network security, reliability and automation and reduce capital and operating costs. In addition, we help unite existing disparate networking systems and technologies to help improve collaboration, strengthen security and achieve a higher return on IT investments.

Secure Infrastructure and Patient Data

Healthcare has long been at the forefront in adopting technology to deliver patient care. In recent years, the pace of adoption has increased dramatically. Internet- and cloud-connected MRI machines, IoT devices, wearables, smart phones and tablets are now commonplace in many hospitals and specialist practices. They are revolutionizing treatment.

But these connected systems also introduce significant security risk.

That’s because each connected device becomes a potentially exploitable endpoint, massively expanding your network’s attack surface. Once infected with malware, a medical device can become vulnerable to data exfiltration attacks or spread infection to other devices on the network. For example, ransomware recently attacked a medical care provider network, preventing them from administering critical radiation treatment to cancer patients. Infoblox solutions take advantage of the unique security properties of DNS, DHCP and IP services running in your network, empowering your teams to:

  • Automatically detect and remediate compromised endpoints wherever they reside in your network
  • Safeguard patient data and minimize the potential for DNS-based data exfiltration
  • Use DNS as a security control point to determine the security status of any connected healthcare device
  • Receive automated alerts about anomalies in network behavior that could indicate malicious activity

Control and Automate Your Network

Network infrastructure in healthcare facilities is notoriously complex, marked by the presence of legacy tools and systems, solution silos and an overreliance on manual processes. At the same time, network administrators face tremendous pressure to make their existing infrastructure compatible with public and private cloud environments, as well as evolving regulatory mandates, such as those involving electronic health records and billing systems. They also must ensure that everything stays connected and runs smoothly across often widely distributed branch locations, doctors’ offices, outpatient clinics and testing labs. They must do all of this and more against a backdrop of budget cuts and a shortage of skilled IT personnel and resources. Infoblox enables your healthcare organization to:

  • Easily and centrally manage all network infrastructure—physical, virtual and cloud
  • Use automation to eliminate time-draining and error-prone manual processes in network management
  • Gain single-pane-of glass visibility for devices and cloud-based applications across geographically dispersed facilities and offices
